I joined the instructional faculty at Glendale Community College in 2006, I love teaching and am very pleased to be a part of the child development department here at GCC. I have a Ph.D. in Human and Organizational Development, an MA in Organizational Development, an MS in Child Development and and BS in Human Development. I have enjoyed a variety of positions in the field of child development from teacher to adminstrator to trainer/instructor. I began my career as a teacher working with infants, toddlers and their families in child care and development programs. I have worked with young children and their families from zero to 12 years of age. In addition to this work I have also served for many years as a program administrator
